Welcome to my 'small stone' blog.
I hope you find
something here that will touch your heart. The poems here will all be very short, some will be a Haiku style, and were prompted by the 'a river of stones' project: http://ariverofstones.blogspot.com/2011/01/what-is-small-stone.html
Please sign my
guest book, your comments will be much appreciated.

A stampede for the shore

The buffalo herd wave,
spray, like prairie dust
below its feet,
stampedes for the shore.

There will be

In its wake
toppled children
add to the brine
with their salty tears.

To shake off this dust,

To shake off this dust,
from whence I came,
Eden's spawn
 so long ago
is beyond my measure.

This contaminated creation dust,
self sullied selfish grime,
clings in daily torment
and draws me
ever closer
to the dust
whose siren call
creates time.
